When Is It Time To Bring a Child In For a Sick Visit?

Children experience all sorts of small symptoms every now and then, so how do you know when an illness is serious enough for a sick visit? If your child is experiencing a high fever of 104 degrees or above, if they are feeling weak, or if they are younger than 3 months, you should contact your doctor immediately.

Other symptoms that show they need to be brought in for a sick visit include:

  • Diarrhea

  • Painful urination

What Happens During a Sick Visit?

A typical sick visit lasts around 15-30 minutes with you or your child’s doctor. They will review your medical history, overall health, and existing symptoms, and then the doctor will go through a few tests to better diagnose your possible illness, such as a blood sample or taking a throat culture.

One the illness has been diagnosed, treatments will then be prescribed to alleviate symptoms and help you or your child recover. Antibiotics may be prescribed for bacterial infections like bacterial sinusitis or strep throat.

If you or your child is experiencing symptoms that won’t go away, come in for a sick visit today at Internal Medicine & Pediatric Clinic.
